    scrappy binding on jelly roll quilt

    I changed my mind at the last minute on the binding of this quilt. I had planned to go with the blue of the last border, but decided to try to use up the rest of the strips from my jelly roll. There weren't enough of any one fabric, so I just cut them in 14 inch segments and put them in the same order they were in the quilt. I have never done a scrappy border before, but I think this looks pretty good.

    What do you think? Did I make the right decision? The binding is a bit hard to see, but maybe you can get the sense of it.

    I think it is great! I did a scrappy binding on a quilt before and I loved how it turned out! Good way to use up those orphan strips and keep the theme of the fabrics used! Nice job!

    Thanks. I may have to make a scrappy binding again. It really looks much better than I thought it would!

    I bought this jelly roll at Tuesday Morning about a year ago. I am looking at the fabric string that held it together, and it says Stripz. The tag says Quick Cuts Stripz...color-coordinate fabric pack. On the back of the tag it says style#3602 Peaceful Planet, made in Pakistan. It is cotton and has 3.5 yards of strips. I have no idea if it is still available anywhere. Hope this helps?

    Thanks Dina! The colors are really pretty. I think I've seen the Stripz brand sold at our Hobby Lobby.

    I googled Peaceful Planet jelly roll fabric....just for fun...and one place it took me to had two rolls, each on sale for $19. I didn't find it anywhere else, nor do I remember where I saw the rolls....but you might play and see what you find.

    I always normally use my left over fabrics to do my binding...less scrap and I do not use up my good yardage. Your quilt is beautiful!

    I love the scrappy look on bindings - your quilt is great.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
